Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Boqueria and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona itinerary planner.

  • The market is located on La Rambla. You can find all kinds of fruit, as well as Iberian cured meats, fish, cheeses etc. Recommended fruit smoothies in just 1 €

  • Like everybody said, avoid at all cost. I feel unfortunate that we stumbled upon this place on our first date of arrival. The food is terrible and overpriced.
  • Expensive, horrible food. the chicken with thympotato was a coalbricket, which has never seen any herbs. the chicken paella had 2,5 chicken pieces in it and was burned. The first real bad experience in Barcelona!!!
  • Soggy and unfresh salad, expensive and not clean?!
  • What a rip-off! Way over-priced, terrible tapas. The crab wasn't even real. Just stay away from this place.
  • The waitress was overworked, the supervisor was cranky. The food was a lot, but not worth it's price. Do stay away from the large coke. This costs 14 euro. I bought a large sprite cost me 16 euros. And they don't put the prices for the drinks on the menu. Its the only time in my life I was angry leaving a restaurant. Avoid this place at all costs
